Brookhaven's Sarah Terry Collects 1000
 October 18, 2010

Farmers Branch, Tx-The Brookhaven College volleyball team has a powerhouse in the shape of 6'2" sophmore middle hitter Sarah Terry. A returner from the 2009 national championship team, Terry has led her squad to a number one national ranking, a 31-5 record and the programs best start in school history. In the process, Terry has broken several school records. Her most recent came Thursday evening in Lancaster, TX as she hit her 1000th career kill against conference foe Cedar Valley College.

The Garland, TX (Richardson High School) native, smashed 19 kills while hitting .552 on the evening, leading Brookhaven to a 3-0 sweep.

Brookhaven volleyball coach Jason Hopkins:

"Sarah has truly blossomed since her first day in the program. She went from playing three rotations as a standard middle blocker last season, to a six rotation all-around player this year. You just don't see that kind of player anymore, particularly from a middle. I knew she would be doing great things for us offensively, bus she has in everyway exceeded my greatest expectations."

Terry, a 2009 first team AVCA/NJCAA All-American, is now chasing the single season kill record. Brookhaven alumni Angela Rumbo-Smith, a 2004 national champion and first team NJCAA All-American, currently holds the record at 589 while Terry sits at 522.

When asked about breaking records, a very humble Terry replied:

"I wasn't expecting or even thinking about breaking records. I feel like I'm just doing my job. I do set personal goals, as everybody on the team does. If we can all achieve our goals, then the team will be successful. That's all I want."

Brookhaven and Sarah Terry will be back in action next Monday as they will play host to Mountain View College at 7:00pm in a Metro Athletic Conference match.
